Motion #7
  • Executive Committee

THAT Conference is concerned at the apparent extent to which MATs and FE college mergers are giving rise to a proliferation of CEO roles, along with associated inflated management structures. Conference believes that education funds need to be used as efficiently and effectively as possible and that teaching, learning and ensuring the health and well-being of all staff and students should take priority over a growing number of senior positions and inflated salaries.

Conference therefore instructs the Executive Committee to put forward to the Joint Executive Council that the Joint Executive Council:

(i) lobby Government to ensure clear accountability for the CEO role

(ii) lobby Government to ensure clear necessity for all senior leader roles

(iii) lobby Government to produce guidelines for salaries of CEOs and senior roles

(iv) work with the NGA and others in calls to focus resources on teaching and learning rather than CEO roles.
